Napoli announced on Tuesday that Amir Rrahmani will miss Napoli’s chance to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League against Ajax after picking up a thigh injury.
In a statement, Napoli said that Kosovo captain Rrahmani had injured a tendon in his left thigh and that he had “begun the recovery process”.
The 28-year-old center back Rrahmani, who has been a constant for coach Luciano Spalletti so far this season, is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks, according to Italian media.
That would rule him out for the remainder of Napoli’s Champions League group A campaign, which has started with three straight victories.
If Napoli defeats Ajax in Naples on Wednesday, they will qualify for the knockout stages with two games to spare.
